Editors' review

PCMedik promises to improve your system's performance and speed, but while it couldn't be easier to use, it offers no details about what's going on behind the scenes. We're all for streamlined tools, but we like to know more about any program that affects our system.

The program installs without issue and opens to a well-designed interface that shows your operating systems and processor on the left. You can change these easily with drop-down menus if the selections aren't correct. A slider lets you increase the tweaks to "Maximum Boost," but when we tried to move the slider it indicated that this was only an option in the paid version. The only other options are found in three buttons on the right of the screen to "Optimize now," "Restore," and "Check for updates." While there was no indication of what PCMedik would do, we hit "Optimize now," anyway. A window appeared that indicated the program was seeking computer information, which changed to let us know that changes were being made to the system's performance. At the end, it asked us to reboot to have the changes take effect. No additional information was given about what changes were made. There didn't seem to be a noticeable difference in performance once we started up our test computer again.

PCMedik may appeal to less tech-savvy users, and it didn't appear to harm our system, but most will want more information about what tweaks and changes the program is implementing than this one offers. As noted, the trial version only allows you to optimize at the lowest settings. If you want more, you'll have to pay up, but we recommend you try other optimization tools that will explain more about the process and give you more control over what they do.

    "Not Very Much Help .."

    March 27, 2012   |   By philw19642002

    Version: PCMedik 6.3.26.2012

    Pros

    I really could not tell much of a difference.

    Cons

    Like I mentioned in Pros I really didn't see much of a difference in using it.

    Summary

    Overall I did not see a change in my PCs performance after using PC Medik. I guess If I would have had the purchased download I might could have but did not see the need to do so!

    Version: PCMedik 6.11.28.2011

    Pros

    Do not see any.

    Cons

    Does it really do anything it shows nothing it removes or changes or adds. Is it just a scam to take our hard earn money you decide.

    Summary

    Save your money there are so many other software out there that do more for free.

    "Would not recommend their products"

    May 26, 2009   |   By sankojam

    Version: PCMedik 6.5.25.2009

    Pros

    Don't like at all.

    Cons

    Right after downloading and installing the trial version I received a message that I had a pirated copy and that I was reported. I don't steal and resent the implication that I do.

    Summary

    Please warn others that this could happen to them also.

    "It helps performance on older pcs."

    September 05, 2007   |   By goldengreeke

    Version: PcMedik 6.9.3.2007

    Pros

    All your apps work pretty well on pc's with 512 MB of memory or less. I have a test pc like that, which I never upgraded, and all five of your products that I have tried helped performance quite a bit,(GameGain, PcBoost, PcMedik, SuperRam, and Throttle). I have a higher end pc with two gigs of memory, and your products did nothing that I could notice, however. Why not combine all your products into one super application, raise the price, and I think you would have a product with a force to be reckened with. I like your free trial, and I am happy they work with Vista.

    "great proggie"

    November 28, 2005   |   By newsguy09

    Version: PcMedik 6.10.3

    Pros

    This is a great easy to use proggie. I was having a lot of problems with internet explorer downloading malware and this proggie fixed it nicely. I've notice a little improvement but it's definately great for fixing problems and securing a computer the easy way.

    Cons

    too simple of an interface with no options
